Wood Turning

Cherry Burl & Walnut Vase With Brass Inlay

This piece is turned from a piece from a burl my uncle had cut off a fallen Cherry tree.

I rough turned the piece of cherry, but I didn’t have to wait long since the wood was already fairly dry. I extended the neck with walnut and filled in a void in the burl with brass filings.

This was my first time inlaying brass and I think it turned out amazingly.
